One Car Too Far

Just saw a Discovery channel tv spot for their new show starring a Jeep and 2 guys driving all over the world. Looks pretty interesting to say the least. Shame they called it a car, but it's a nice red TJ I think.

I am very excited about this show... I have a flame red TJ.

I wonder what model TJ it is... and what mods have been done to it?

It's a CJ, not a TJ from what I saw.

Just watched the trailer and it's definitely a TJ. I wonder if they have multiple Jeeps because I'm sure one of the commercials I saw was a CJ.

Did anyone note how they introduced the vehicle?

"...but, this car is being flown there to be dropped...."

Let's hope Ken (kjeeper) doesn't see this thread!

Yea, that was what got me, too. Still, it looks like a decent premise and a nice Jeep with no roads. Going to be a great hour long commercial for these things, I'm all for it.

It looked like it had a d35, in one of the scenes they showed the tire being strapped to the frame.

Or did I see that wrong

From what I see, it looks like a pre-2003 TJ with a D35. It apears that the only mods are the tires (not sure about any lift), rims and snorkel.
I actually like the fact that they are using a base model with very mild mods. Should be more interesting than seeing a tricked out beast just walk through stuff like it was on a strole at the park.
And yeah, it ticks me off that they are saying it's a car. Just call it what it is.

I looked for the show via Google. Imdb listed the show as dropping a red car and 2 people into the middle of nowhere...

Don't they know about the kittens?

I really want to watch the 1st show to see why they chose this Wrangler. It could be as simple as the mechanical guy knows how to work on them.

I'll be DVR'n that. They could make it better if they were to use a 2012 JKU Dozer. That would be cool.

I thought about that. I average about 200 miles per tank with the 15 gallons that it holds. I would assume that they modded the tank to hold 19 gallons.
